Footage was shot on Red 8K cameras (Dragon, VistaVision and the Helium Sensor s35 models — Helium s35 and Epic-W). According to the company, new 8K footage is continuously being shot, so its MHD/8K library is growing quickly. The company expects more offerings this fall. Footage previews and clips can be found online at MammothHD's Website (www.mammothhd.com/8K/MHD_8K.html). NEW YORK CITY — Content marketplace Pond5 (www.pond5.com), in conjunc- tion with DJI (www.dji.com), the manufacturer of civilian drones and aerial imag- ing technology, has unveiled the first wave of content in its premium collection of licensable aerial drone footage. Included in the launch of the Pond5 DJI collection (pond5.com/dji) are shots by FAA Part 107-certified pilots that cover a spectrum of landscapes and perspectives. These include natural terrain, urban cityscapes, rare shots of animals in the wild and sweeping overviews of modern industry. "The response to our call for filmmakers using DJI drones is truly inspiring," says Pond5 CEO, Jason Teichman. "We received a wealth of aerial footage to choose from for this collection, and it's continuing to roll in non-stop. Being able to provide our buyers with shots of this quality captured by certified pi- lots speaks directly to Pond5's mission of supporting filmmakers on both sides of our marketplace, and to the passion of the artists in the DJI community." DJI has been working closely with the team of video experts and curators at Pond5 on the genesis and launch of the collection, helping to ensure that the most compelling aerial footage shot with DJI products is made easily accessible to customers searching for studio-quality shots to use in their productions. "This collection marks the start of a new era for filmmakers looking to pur- chase and sell drone footage," explains Michael Perry, managing director of DJI, North America. "We're always amazed at the sheer quality and diversity that pilots using DJI drones display in their work. Bringing this creativity to the mil- lions of filmmakers who use Pond5 in a way that reinforces safe and legal drone operations is extremely rewarding." By applying to join this program, pilots operating with a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which is required for US commercial use, are presented with the opportunity to lever- age Pond5's industry knowledge in identifying their most in-demand shots, as well as potentially obtaining assistance in preparing their footage for licensing in the Pond5 marketplace. Pilots certified in territories outside the US are also encouraged to submit their credentials, as there are plans to further expand the scope of the collection in the near future to include certified pilots from all around the world.
